Thai Fried Chicken


at Soi

(Robinsons Place)

-Ermita, Manila-

While I do generally have a positive impression of Soi (see most recently 5.039 Thai Kangkong), and no other Thai restaurants are in the neighborhood, this inexplicably is just the second time that I’ve eaten here, for dinner, when it counts, a couple quick lunches on the weekends not counting.

The occasion was dinner before watching X-Men : Apocalypse — which sucked donkeys, worst X-Men installment yet (haven’t seen the Wolverine spin-offs).

The Thai Fried Chicken was quite nice.  Crispy on the outside, juicy within.  Perfectly seasoned, with a hint of something aromatically Thai-ish — lemongrass?  Best fried chicken that I’ve had in awhile (see also 7.023 The Original Storm).

I should come here more often, even if only for lunch, during the week (the office is but an 8-min walk away).
